Ben mi, evet…bir gün çıkıp gideceğim kapıları, anımsayışların, bekleyişlerin, ümitlerin ya da ümitsizliklerin, hırsların, yarışların, tasaların kalktığı yerde, hiç kimseye seslenmeyen, kendi kendine yeten sadece…koşulsuz, önyargısız, hesapsız…yani uzanmak ve düşünmek binlerce yıl.. doğan, ölen ve yaşayan şeyleri…yani dingin ve büyük olan her şeyi anlatmak…ben mi, evet çıkıp gideceğim bir gün…

Effective Teacher Policies: What do to assign high-quality teachers?


 

Teacher policies have a critical role to play in delivering a future

Teachers are the most important school resource. In every country, teachers’ salaries and training represent the greatest share of expenditure on education; and this investment in teachers can have significant returns. Research shows that being taught by the best teachers can make a real difference in the learning and life outcomes of otherwise similar students. But not all students are equal when it comes to access to high-quality teaching. In fact, PISA data show that there are inequities in access to experienced and qualified teachers in many countries, and that they are related to the gap in learning outcomes between advantaged and disadvantaged students.

In 2015, a majority of countries and economies that participated in PISA compensated disadvantaged schools with smaller classes and/or lower student-teacher ratios. However, in more than a third of countries and economies, teachers in the most disadvantaged schools were less qualified or less experienced than those in the most advantaged schools.

Gaps in student performance related to socio-economic status were wider in countries where socio-economically disadvantaged schools employed fewer qualified and experienced teachers than advantaged schools.

Greater school autonomy for managing teachers is associated with more equitable sorting of teachers across schools.

Turkey: Arrest of union leaders – Discrimination and dismissals

In the aftermath of the attempted coup in July 2016, civil liberties have been severely downtrodden in Turkey and trade unions and their members have been systematically targeted under the guise of the state of emergency. In April 2017 alone, more than 2,125 persons were detained and 3,974 workers were dismissed from public services. During the year, the government banned numerous strikes organised in the glass and the metal sectors because it deemed them “prejudicial to national security”.

In April 2017, 14 TUMTIS officials, including Ankara branch president Nurettin Kılıçdoğan, received heavy prison sentences ranging from 1.5 years to 6.5 years for recruiting new members and obstructing the freedom of conducting business, while Zeynep Çelik, a nurse and former DISK Executive Committee member, was arrested in May 2017.

In August 2017, 682 teachers in the southeastern provinces, all members of Eğitim-Sen (Union of Education Workers), were subject to compulsory reassignment in other provinces for “participating in marches contrary to the Turkish Republic’s fight against terrorism”.

In February 2018, Elif Cuhadar, a KESK Executive Committee member, was arrested for statements she had made during a panel discussion in 2014.

Three other public service trade union members, Cagdas Yazici, Recep Temel and Idil Ugurlu, were detained without due process in March 2018.
